Ocean Reef Real Estates Sales is pleased to present an incredible opportunity to build a waterfront home on a lovely, forested property for sale at 139 W Hodge Rd in Santa Rosa Beach. What makes the deal even sweeter? It includes a new custom dock with a boat house and lifts!
Destin and Santa Rosa Beach are a true boaters paradise. The Destin peninsula is surrounded on three sides by water three to five miles off the mainland to the north across Choctawhatchee Bay, the East Pass towards the west, and the open gulf to the south. In many ways, it actually resembles a wooded tropical island with lots of places to take a cruise, go fishing, or explore the beautiful bay. You can also head east to an expansive preserved wetlands area with many connected waterways that make you feel like you are somewhere in South America. It is a precious habitat for many fish, American Bald Eagles, Osprey Falcons, Snowy White Egrets, and Great Blue Herons. The Intercoastal Waterway canal connects to West Bay in Panama City Beach if you want a fun day adventure.
This waterfront property spans nearly ¾ of an acre (approximately 32,670 square feet) and includes a newly completed dock. This parcel of land is beautifully forested with Live Oaks, Magnolias, Loblolly Long Leaf Pines, and Palmetto Palms. Many folks who already have a waterfront home with docks here have boats designed for fishing or pontoon boats for fun with family and friends. This private setting overlooks an adjoining Wetland area on the other side filled with abundant wildlife. The new dock is low maintenance with pass-thru grates and includes electrical hookups and water. It contains two Jet Ski berths and a power lift to raise or lower a watercraft weighing up to 1,500 pounds. A covered boat house includes a Golden Series power lift that can raise or lower a vessel that weighs up to 9,000 pounds.
Located on Hogtown Bayou, this property is very popular for all your angling adventures. It provides easy access to the expansive Choctawhatchee Bay and is very close to Crab Island near Destin’s bustling marina. Many locals and visitors love to cruise over the Crab Island boat party near the Destin Harbor beside East Pass, which takes you into the glorious gulf. Party participants anchor their boats when the tide is coming in since it features crystal clear water that is only three to five feet deep. They enjoy drinks, picnics, and the festive surroundings. In recent years, vendors on small floating barges offer cocktails, cold beer, wine, sandwiches, and savory snacks. Sometimes, a large barge shows up with music and delightful games or contests in the water. The golden Americana-styled crown jewel of Destin, HarborWalk Village, is nearby, with dockside restaurants and friendly casual bars playing live music. You can dock your boat here to enjoy some wining and dining yourself. HarborWalk also hosts elaborate festivals, outdoor concerts, and seasonal firework extravaganzas.
Besides having direct access to the beautiful bay, this locale is just eight minutes away by car to the bright white beach and jewel-toned gulf. The acclaimed Santa Rosa Beach coastal village center of Gulf Place is also nearby, featuring great restaurants, friendly bars, fashion boutiques, art galleries, and specialty shops. An outdoor lawn amphitheater surrounded by Royal Palm trees offers live concerts, art shows, and fun seasonal festivals. This location is also close to Publix and Walmart for convenient grocery shopping.
